I'm sorry to say this but most of us experience exactly what you've described. Once they go in the abdomen, for many women, adhesions start to take over. Having surgeries to rid yourself of adhesions sometimes helps, but its only a viscious circle. Unless you are having obstructive symptoms or the pain is so unbearable, try to hold off on going back in. For many of us, myself included, I can't seem to wait because I get frequent bowel obstructions...then you don't have a choice.

Hang in there...we're all here to help you cope. YOU ARE NOT CRAZY! Just another victim of these stupid things called adhesions.

You are in my prayers.
